For my undefeated team in a big money league (top prize 300k among 4 thousand teams), I lost Dak and dropped Claypool Saturday.

I will be 1-4 in one of my leagues. I have a good team on paper and I might have made some line-up mistakes, but after this week I will have 878 points against in Full PPR (avg. 175). 2nd team with most points against will have 771. The rest all under 700. 

Feels like every week is a party and I'm the piñata.

Lost by 0.02 points last night. Had I not had to sub in the Chiefs D for the Pats, I would've won. Just devastating.

Had Chase Edmonds In as flex all week but got cute and changed to Higgins early yesterday. Now barring John brown and the titans laying duds I’m projected to lose, but the 10 point difference between Edmonds and Higgins probably would be enough to be safe.

My team sucks donkey dick.

 

Cam: ****** around with COVID and found out

Teddy: solid fill-in for Cam actually

CEH: he's a mediocre RB2, but people aren't ready to admit it yet

Jonathan Taylor: he's a mediocre RB2, but people aren't ready to admit it yet

Chris Carson: stud RB1

ARob: stud WR1

McLaurin: been sitting on my bench for weeks only to have his worst performance of the season when I finally play him. Scary Terry my a**.

Adams: rollercoaster of injuries and byes

Schultz: the less said about this bum, the better

Parker: goes off on my bench every week

Fuller: goes off on my bench every week

Crowder: goes off on my bench every week

Moss: rookie bust

Kelley: ? but probably gonna hang 20 tonight cause he's on my bench. then he'll put up a 4 burger in my starting lineup next week

Henderson: trash when I start him, superstar when I sit him

Jason Myers: never kicks a field goal trash

 

ok I'm done, I feel better

Venting because I started Olamide  Zaccheaus over Chase Claypool. Before kickoff I even told myself to take a chance on Claypool. Yes my receiver situation is horrible.

It's not "huge" money, buy-in is only $250. It's still a 12-team league with deep benches (20 players rostered), there's still a league winner by week 14, but week 14-16 is also all-play based on points among all contenders and top prize is $300k. You also get prizes for winning your 12-team league, etc.

I lost Chubb last weekend. So of course I just had to at least pickup D'Ernest Johnson, right? 

My only available roster drop was Mattison. Now as a Dalvin Cook owner as well, and Seahawks fan, I knew exactly how this was going to go. Cook would finally get hurt while I'm watching the game, hurting my fantasy team, while watching his backup, the top waiver wire add probably, dominate. I blame myself!!! At least the Hawks won.

Changed my team name to the Toilet Bowl Champs. This is the 2nd year in a row where my team graded out highly by sites like FantasyPros, and then completely flatlined once the season started. I can't tell whether I'm unlucky, or I just suck a** at fantasy football

I've used fantasypro's now for 5 years and every grade after my draft has been the best team in the league.  Haven't made the playoffs in that time.

From now on I'm considering it to be as accurate as Yahoo's draft grades. Complete garbage.

No one in their right mind would predict Claypool 4 TDs.

Right there with you two. I give my team a 5% chance of making the playoffs at this point. My RBs who are supposed to be good, are trash

 

QB - Newton, Bridgewater

RB - CEH, Taylor, Carson, Kelley, Henderson, Moss

WR - Adams, ARob, McLaurin, Parker, Fuller, Crowder

TE: Schultz

No. I wasn’t predicting a 4 TD performance but what bothers me is like I said, I even told myself take a chance and start him. Then I go on to lose my matchup by 12 points. FML

Never thought I'd be 1-4 with this roster...but here I am. Baring a miracle comeback, my playoff hopes are looking slim.

QB: Josh Allen

RB: Henry, CEH, Mostert

WR: Adams, Juju, Chark, Hollywood

TE: Hurst, Goedert

that's brutal. that's a really good looking roster and coming in to the season I would've said you were a shoo-in for the playoffs.
